NIXON -- With a dominating effort in the fourth quarter, the Falls City Beaverettes overcame a small halftime deficit and handed the Nixon-Smiley Lady Mustangs a 61-46 loss heading into the Christmas break.

The two strong, evenly matched girls basketball teams looked the part during the first half, and the two traded blows at each end of the court throughout the first half. The Beaverettes have a new style of play this season, and it seems a good fit, as Falls City jumped out to a 15-12 advantage after the first eight minutes of play.

In the second quarter, the Lady Mustangs stormed back with an 18-point effort. Nixon-Smiley found points in the paint, and managed to outscore the Beaverettes by 5. As the buzzer sent the teams to the locker rooms, it was Nixon-Smiley on top of Falls City, 30-28.

Both teams made some necessary defensive adjustments at the half, and the scoring by both teams was stifled slightly in the third. The Beaverettes held a slight scoring advantage by the end of the third stanza, and the teams found themselves tied at 40-40 with just one quarter remaining in regulation. The game was either team’s to win, and it became clear that the team that wanted it the most would take home the victory.

The pace quickened in the fourth and final quarter of the game, but the momentum began to swing fully toward Falls City. Nearly every shot fell for the Beaverettes, and Nixon-Smiley struggled to score in the end. While the Beaverettes posted their best shooting quarter of the night with 21 points, the Lady Mustangs struggled, scoring just 6 points throughout the entire fourth quarter, and eventually fell by the final score of 61-46.

Camari Crawford led the Beaverette scoring effort with a 20-point game. Tiffany Dziuk and Ashleigh Blocker each dropped in 7 points on the night, and Kristen Jendrusch was good for another 5. Eight additional Beaverettes scored points for Falls City, helping the team to a victory, and keeping the statisticians busy throughout the night.

Abigail Scarbrough led the Lady Mustangs in scoring with 9 points on the night, followed by Alena Alvarez with 8 points, and Kelby Henderson and Jennifer Flores with 7 points each.

While Nixon-Smiley was scheduled to face Flatonia Dec. 20 in Nixon, the game marked the beginning of a short break from competition for Falls City to enjoy the Christmas holidays.
